Gabrielle Union dished on her fiancé Dwyane Wade’s marriage proposal to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on their “Live with Kelly and Michael” show, according to a Jan. 8 Us Weekly report. The “Being Mary Jane” star and newly engaged bride-to-be revealed that her beau proposed to her over the Christmas holidays with the help of his two sons Zaire, 11 and Zion, 6.

“I was completely surprised. Him and the boys planned it completely, as a family,” Union told Ripa and Strahan on Jan. 7. “We were just gonna spend the day together, having a little quality time, went to brunch, I'm clueless.”

She continued with the boys’ post lunch antics, “They like to do skits and songs and stuff, so we turn around, and they're like, ‘Okay, we're ready!' and I turn back around and all the boys were holding up signs that said, 'Will you marry us?’”

According to People Magazine, the proposal took place at the construction site for the couple's new home, where the stunned star “turned to D ... and he's down on one knee.” Still in disbelief, the star was not sure whether it was just another wishful thinking episode on the part of the boys. “I said, “Oh, you're serious?’”

“The thing is, they ask me all the time, so I'm thinking, ‘'well this is embarrassing, now they've made signs,’” she told Ripa and Stratchan. The couple announced their engagement over the holidays. Since then, news that Wade recently fathered a third son with another woman while on break from Union hit the press. The NBA star has since confirmed the news, Us Weekly reports. “I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So I'm moving on.”
